After the tour, there will be a short business meeting and social.
SJIHA members and members of the public are welcome to the regular meeting of the SJI Hunters and Anglers on Thursday, July 13th. The get-together begins with a tour of the Conservation Trails led by Wayne Ingram. The trails have been developed by the Club to help educate the public about our local natural features and to provide an outdoor experience that will be accessible to public use. A view of the recently seeded wildlife food plots will be included in the Trail tour, and also the developing pollinator natural gardens will be described. Rain has made the trails wet. Boots would be a good idea. After the tour, everyone will convene inside the Conservation Centre for a brief business meeting and social. Please join us.
